Home Food Preservation: Pickling will explain the scientific reasoning behind today’s recommended methods for making and processing pickled products, while dispelling food preservation myths and unsafe practices of the past.

While this method of home food preservation has existed for centuries, we have learned much about the science behind this practice in recent years. The Home Food Preservation series of webinars will provide you with the scientific background, preparation tips, and safe processing methods to preserve food at home.
